The COVID-19 pandemic poses a severe threat to the Gaza Strip. Under an Israeli blockade supported by Egypt since 2007, the besieged Palestinian area with over 2 million inhabitants faces a chronic lack of necessary equipment: there are only 56 respirators and 40 intensive care beds.

Founded in 1985, the Union of Health Work Committees (UHWC) is a leading Palestinian health organization. Around 300,000 people benefit from its services in the Gaza Strip every year. Located in Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, Al-Awda hospital is administered by the UHWC and provides medical services to thousands of Palestinians. Today, more than ever, Al-Awda hospital needs our support!
